Survivors

On 11 May 2012, a crashed P-40 was found in the Sahara desert in phenomenal condition. The pilot went missing in 1942. Plans are being made to move the aircraft to a British museum.

Of the 13,738 P-40s built, only 28 P-40s remain airworthy, with three of them being converted to dual-controls/dual-seat configuration. Approximately 13 aircraft are on static display and another 36 airframes are under restoration for either display or flight.
